Kali Anastasi! Happy Easter! No, I’m not going to watch the midnight ceremony - I’m too scared of the bangers the kids throw. It’s been bad this year

Walked down to #mylopotas #beach for the last time for a while. Lovely day, but I don’t think I’ll get in the sea - too windy when I get out! #mylopotasbeach #ios_island #cyclades #greece #iosisland #instalovers_gr #tumblr #lambsios #iosmay2014 #ios2014 #iosisland2014 #ios_island2014 #magicofios #bluesea #blueskies #blueholics #iloveios 💙☀️😎 (at Ios island, Greece)

On my way home after delivering some figs. I took the scenic route instead of the shortcut, & caught this shot of the sun going down behind the #church on the way to #francescos. Back home now - decorating the shells is far more fiddly than I thought it’d be. Early night tonight, I need some sleep #francescosios #lambisstory #sunsetonios #ios_island #cyclades #greece #July2016 #tumblr #lambsios #cyclades_islands #ioslife #iosgreeceisland #iosgreece2016 #iloveios #magicofios #greeksummer2016 (at Ios Island Kyklades Greece)

On ze boat! Looks like a perfect day for a sea journey. Back in the day, when we lived on Ios, I used to hate #Pireaus #Athens #Greece - too noisy, too bustling ….. Now I love being in a busy port with the opportunities of all sorts of journeys open to me. It’s not busy at this time of year, but it still emits a certain energy. Not that many passengers on the #bluestardelos, but it’s a huge ferry. I’ve travelled on all sorts of boats to get to various Greek islands, but this is my favourite of the modern ones - clean, spacious & the crew are polite. My favourite experience was travelling on the Miaoulis back in the day & the captain serenading us with a song as we set sail from Paros. Mind you, being followed by a school of dolphins, frolicking in our wake from Paros to Ios, comes a close second. We’ve set sail now & I’ve started to get excited about seeing my magic island again #goingtoios #ontheboat #lambisstory #livebig #liveagreatstory #tumblr #lambsios #feelinggood #feelingexcited #February2016 #livingingreece #seajourney (at Blue Star Delos)

Had a lovely catch up with Lou & a delicious meal at our favourite Thai café in Wandsworth. Back in #kensingtonlondon, I’m amazed at the variety of super cars I’ve seen today. Well I know it’s a posh area, but …. 3 Maseratis, 2 Lambirghinis & a Ferrari? That’s without the Rolls or two - personally I’m rather fond of this quirky Caterham, though I prefer the bright yellow one I saw last year. Time to call it a day, good night friends #lambisstory #August2016 #caterham #london2016 #tumblr #lambsios #summerinlondon (at London / Kensington Area)

Happy Sunday! Am having breakfast at #YannisRooms on my way to #Ulishouse our #mylopotashouse. There’s a breeze, so the hike won’t be too hot. I had a late start today. #church #ios_island #Cyclades #Greece #lambisstory #lambsios #iosgreece #iosisland #tumblr #wu_Greece15 #ig_cyclades #cyclades_islands #beautyofios #magicofios #Ios2015 #June2015 ✨💙✨ (at Yannis Rooms, Ios Greece)

I had the most uplifting experience this afternoon: I had coffee with somebody I’ve admired on IG ever since I first joined. I’m posting a #blue #kaleidoscope because I always associate this colour with his pics of the sea. I really enjoyed meeting up with him - we chatted about life, the universe & everything - what a great afternoon! I hope we’ll meet again

Happy Friday friends! I’m so happy my #daffs came up & also that my herbs saw me through winter. I wonder what’ll be greeting me on Ios - a lot of clover no doubt - but I’m hoping some of the things I planted last November survived. I’m getting great pleasure seeing what I planted grow. I took some rose cuttings from my cousin’s garden here - they, in turn come from my late Yiayia’s garden - & they’ve rooted. I want to plant them over Uli’s ashes in my garden on Ios. The roses have a beautiful scent to them & somehow I like the thought of my Yiayia looking over us in Ios - I was named after Yiayia Lambi & although I didn’t know her well & she died when I was young, I’ve always felt a special closeness to her. Better get back to those emails & letters #daffodils #springflowers #springiscoming #lambisstory #livebig #liveagreatstory #tumblr #lambsios #gettingorganised #winterinathens2016 #February2016 #joyofgardening #joyofwatchingplantsgrow (at Elliniko, Athens, Greece)

Sun setting next to the #acropolis #Athens #Greece. After a fabulous day walking around Lycavittos hill & visiting Katerina in #undergroundfashion, I ended up with a prosecco at the #grandebretagne #rooftopbar watching the #sunset #sunsetoverathens. Sunset, the Acropolis & the sea - what could be more magical?! Oh, yes, I bought some boots too, because I haven’t got enough pairs 😉 #iamathenian #ImAnAthenian #iamanathenian #lambisstory #livebig #tumblr #liveagreatstory #liveinthenow #lambsios #becauseiwantto #winterinathens2016 #February2016 (at Grande Bretagne Rooftop Garden Restaurant)

Back in Elliniko after a smooth ferry trip back. Lots of work awaits me, the 2 cats seem happy to see me. It’s funny observing the different characters they have & how they react to my presence. Gypsy was in the house when I got back last night & the minute she heard me, she ran up to me & chirruped away wanting cuddles & love. I offered food, but all she wanted was strokes & petting. Lily came in a bit later, positioned herself on the kitchen table & screamed. I rushed in, she was staring at her empty plate & took no notice of me. I filled her plate & she tucked in & ignored me. It was only when I went to bed that she deigned to come near for cuddles. No, I didn’t get much sleep last night as #gypsythecat insisted on sleeping on my head, while #lilythecat spread out on my tummy. Whenever I tried to shift position, I was bitten or clawed (Lily), but I managed to settle Gypsy next to me on the pillow. It’s good to see them again. #lambiscats #lambiscatstories #tumblr #springtimeingreece #March2016 #lambsios #catsagram #catlady #catlovers #catsofinstagram #instacats (at Ellinikón, Greece)

Had a swim here at #Tzamaria #beach. The #sea was wonderful today. So clear! I really love getting into the water. My feet are feeling better too. Had a chat with friends at Agalia Luxury Suites first, but didn’t feel like swimming in the pool - even though it’s a fabulous pool. Give me the sea any time. #ios_island #Cyclades #Greece #lambsios #lambisstory #magicofios #iosgreece #iosisland #agiairini #aghiairene #Ios2015 #June2015 💙☀️🏊😎 (at Tsamaria Beach, Ios, Greece)

I made a mixed veggie stir fry in a spicy peanut butter & coconut milk sauce. Had quite a healthy food day today: smashed avocado for lunch, the stir fry for dinner, accompanied by a fruit, herb & spice infused water. The farmers’ strike & tractor blockade of roads means there isn’t the variety of fruit & veg in the supermarket as supplies can’t get through, so I had an interesting mix of veggies for my meal: carrots, cucumbers, celeriac, brusselsprouts, green beans ….. #vegetarian #veganfood #lambismeals #tumblr #healthyfood #yummyfood #lambsios #winterinathens2016 #January2016 (at Ellinikó, Attiki, Greece)
